Film Premiere-Auction/ Gala Reception
Friday, March 15, 2013
This March we will be hosting WHAT A DIFFERENCE A DAY MAKES: 24 Hour Art Challenge. The 24 participating artists will have a 24-hour period in which to create an artwork based around a small set of prompts and guidelines to be revealed that day. These works will be sold in a very unique way to raise money for Very Special Arts Brevard. Established in 1987, this local organization is committed to providing persons with disabilities the opportunity to reach their full potential through the arts. You can visit their website for more information.
While we are anticipating 24 wonderful artworks based on the talents here in Brevard County, a lot of the focus of the project is the creative process and why artists make art, to begin with. To share that experience with our audience, we will be videotaping a portion of each participant’s work day and editing the footage into a documentary about the project that will be screened prior to our special reception. As you can imagine, we are working on a lot of details to make this project a success. The creative minds at Brandt Ronat & Company will be partnering with Fifth Avenue Art Gallery to produce the documentary.
The opening for WHAT A DIFFERENCE A DAY MAKES: 24 Hour Art Challenge will be held on Friday, March 1, 2013, in conjunction with First Friday Art Walk. This reception is free and open to the public. The film premiere and special reception will be held on Friday March 15, 2013 for the participating artists and event ticketholders.
Get involved and help us impact our community through art!
